Happy Christmas......FMS 64
My British relatives always wish us "Happy Christmas" so I was delighted to see this sentiment included in the More Merry Messages set! I will be sending this across the ocean for sure. My mother did bring some interesting traditions with her to America. Instead of a stocking, a ribboned pillowcase was tied to my closet doorknob and Christmas morning I found it stuffed with fruit, sweet treats, and games. There was always roast beef and Yorkshire pudding for Christmas dinner - and yes flaming plum pudding. (I always skipped the mince tarts and that horrid fruitcake!) And there are way too many holiday pictures of me wearing a paper crown that came out of the cracker by my plate. I'd like a word with the Brit who invented those snappy things...............
